Study & Intern in Toledo

by The University of Minnesota

Head back in time in Toledo, a charming Medieval walled city. Strengthen your language skills, choose from a variety of program courses, and immerse yourself in an internship.

This program is offered in collaboration with the prestigious José Ortega-Marañón Foundation and the University of Minnesota. Based at the San Juan de la Penitencia residence, a converted 16th-Century convent, the program offers modern learning facilities surrounded by spectacular views of the city, and easy access to the downtown area and public transit. In addition to the opportunity to improve Spanish language ability, the program offers a wide range of courses in the humanities, social sciences and arts.

Located an hour from the city of Madrid, Toledo offers an excellent base from which you can explore Spain. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Toledo is a living museum, a preserved part of Spanish history where people still live, work, and play. A city of approximately 80,000, Toledo offers an environment where you can immerse in Spanish culture through coursework, internships, and daily life.
